Adventure travel options abound in Belize, where a landscape thick with biodiversity and rich in activities awaits. It’s home to jaguars and monkeys, storks and crocodiles, and hundreds of bird and fish species. All live in habitats ranging from wetlands to rainforests to the world’s second-largest coastal barrier reef. Flanking the eastern Caribbean Sea, this English-speaking Central American country boasts 250 miles of coastline and a well-developed infrastructure of parks and nature preserves.
Belize caters to travelers with a spirit of discovery and an ecological bent. Visitors of all adrenaline levels can find their bliss. Hikers, wind along trails connecting rainforest waterfalls, then zipline through a lush jungle canopy. Birders, tour the amazing Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, where scores of winged creatures take flight. Water lovers can snorkel or command a sea kayak right off the beach. The culturally curious can explore mysterious Mayan ruins and sample the cuisine, music and dance of the Garifuna, descendants of West African and indigenous Caribbean people. And, for end-of-day relaxation, its possible to unwind in a tropical forest lodge or kick back in a beachside, over-the-water cabana, gazing across the sea.
